Devices are producers and consumers of ClearBlade IoT Platform resources. Often, they are sensors that generate data, that is then processed by the ClearBlade Edge or Platform. In other cases, a device may be a hardware controller, which consumes commands and controls a motor or actuator.


Devices may not be IP-enabled and may require physical communication protocols, as such as BLE or Zigbee to communicate. Often times, a gateway is an IP-enabled machine used to communicate with one or more sensors.
